Lady Waynwood Cast in Game of Thrones

Lady Waynwood Cast in Game of Thrones

As spotted by WiC, English-Italian actress Paola Dionisotti has been cast as Lady Anya Waynwood in Game of Thrones, according to her CV. Ms. Dionisotti is perhaps best known for her work in theater, namely for being an active member of the Royal Shakespeare Company. She has appeared on quite a few popular British dramas, including Poirot, Midsomer Murders, and Doctors. Lady Waynwood is the head of House Waynwood, and like Bronze Yohn Royce – who’s casting was also recently reported – is sworn to House Arryn of the Vale. Author’s Note: I’m pleasantly surprised that the Vale seems likely to get a significant...

It’s Not Porn… It’s HBO

It’s Not Porn… It’s HBO

HBO is known for many things.  Wonderful acting, amazing writing and… adult content.  A video making its way around the internet this week pokes fun at some of the more graphic scenes from HBO’s Girls, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones.  WARNING: sexual language ahead: We actually took a look at this issue this month with articles on whether or not HBO was giving us the shaft and a defense of keeping it covered up.  What do you think about the level of nudity on...

“The Money” Sent to Pilot by HBO

“The Money” Sent to Pilot by HBO

Irish star Brendan Gleeson has been cast as the lead in the pilot for a new HBO series simply called The Money. According to Deadline.com; The Money is about wealth and corruption among the super elite, focusing on American mogul and patriarch James Castman (Gleeson), who wields power and influence to expand his media empire and control his family. The pilot is written by David Milch, who HBO fans will know as the man behind Deadwood, John from Cincinnati, and Luck. There isn’t any other concrete news about The Money yet, but you can be sure we’ll keep you posted when more is...

Movie Review: Parental Guidance

Movie Review: Parental Guidance

The great thing about Parental Guidance is that it is a perfect example of how not to make a family comedy. Film students for years to come should be shown this disastrous piece of ‘cinema’ so that nothing this awful graces our screens ever again. Starring Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Maris Tomei it’s hard to believe that a family comedy could crash and burn as spectacularly as this did. The story is fairly straightforward – Billy Crystal plays baseball announcer Artie Decker who, in the opening scenes, gets fired from his current job. His vivacious wife Diane is played by Bette Midler who is introduced to us with her legs...

Irish Actress Jane McGrath Cast in Game of Thrones

Irish Actress Jane McGrath Cast in Game of Thrones

In an interview with IFTN, actress Jane McGrath revealed that she has a role in the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones. She has confirmed that she will be playing a wildling. McGrath will be appearing in the upcoming Irish film Black Ice. She has also starred in The Clinic, Quirke, and Silent Witness. Here’s an extract from the interview: Do you have any other upcoming roles you can tell us about? At the moment, I’m up and down to Belfast on ‘Game of Thrones’. I’m not even allowed to talk to my friends about it and can’t be giving anything away! My character is beyond the Wall and it was stunning. When...

The Lindsay Lohan Show?

The Lindsay Lohan Show?

How about it for Lindsay Lohan’s comeback! She has a docu-series coming up on OWN, another movie out called Canyons and, of course, we know about her upcoming stint on EASTBOUND AND DOWN. Now, I admit there is not much to this news but it is another fun piece to speculate on. It seems that Danny McBride just might be interested in working with Lohan again. As EASTBOUND AND DOWN winds down with one more season starting on 09.29 McBride will have some free time to option his development deal with HBO.  Apparently, he decided Lohan was tremendously talented and had “several serious talks” with her between takes about a new show...

Rome: The Complete Series Review

Rome: The Complete Series Review

Existing as the pinnacle of what HBO is capable of achieving in terms of quality entertainment, Rome was perhaps too good to be true. With an estimated total budget of $100,000,000, it was grossly expensive for its time. The attention to detail was apparent throughout the show’s two seasons, however, and while it was short-lived, it still remains one of the best shows HBO has ever produced. The quality of the show noticeably declined during the second season, although this can be fully explained by the fact that it was cut short. Originally planned to be five seasons long (the second ending with Brutus’ death, the third and...

EASTBOUND AND DOWN’S Awesome Posters & Trailer

EASTBOUND AND DOWN’S Awesome Posters & Trailer

Here is a poster set that might warrant a chuckle from you. Take a gander of the EASTBOUND AND DOWN posters sent our way from BLT Communication LLC, a PR firm out of Hollywood. The first appears to be the more mainstream poster for the upcoming fourth and final season. The other three posters offer a stylized image of Kenny Powers’ grizzled face and an awesome catchphrase each. Which one do you like? I like the last one myself.   Don’t forget EASTBOUND AND DOWN premieres 09.29.13 at 10:00pm ET. Now we had a short tease or two but here is the Season Four trailer at 1:01. Is it getting hard...

Jazz It Up! “Boardwalk Empire” Debuts Soundtrack Vol. 2

Jazz It Up! “Boardwalk Empire” Debuts Soundtrack Vol. 2

Break out your dancing shoes – Boardwalk Empire‘s second album will get you up and moving! “Boardwalk Empire Volume 2: Music form the HBO Original Series” debuted September 3rd, just days ahead of the season 4 premiere Sunday, September 8th. While some music out these days is questionably good, this soundtrack isn’t. It’s fantastic and spans several genres while maintaining a strong jazz feel. And believe me, it is well worth the money. Boardwalk Empire‘s first soundtrack, debuting in 2011, was award-winning, earning the 2012 Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media and topping the...

Did you Hear About Kanye West’s HBO Pilot?

Did you Hear About Kanye West’s HBO Pilot?

Truthfully, you might have seen this already, but I was in the mood for throwing something a little fun up on the site. I was sitting on this for a while, but I didn’t want to post it because I didn’t need the Wrath of Kanye down on me. Enough other sites have run it so here it is. It seems back in 2008 Kanye West wanted to add acting to his long resume. So, Larry David of all people helped him out.  Mr. “CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM” had enough enthusiasm to produce a pilot episode of a comedy for Mr. West who called himself the “black Larry David.” As the following will plainly illustrate Kanye should not quit his day job. Thankfully,...

Bronze Yohn Royce Cast in Game of Thrones

Bronze Yohn Royce Cast in Game of Thrones

The casting news continues to take us by storm (of swords)! According to his CV, English thespian Rupert Vansittart has been cast as Bronze Yohn Royce in Game of Thrones. Mr. Vansittart is known for guest starring in the likes of Foyle’s War, Mr. Bean, Dr. Who, and Midsomer Murders, and for playing Lord Bottoms in Braveheart and Lord Ashfordly in Heartbeat. Now he will be portraying yet another lord.  Bronze Yohn is the father of Waymar Royce, who viewers will remember as the arrogant member of the Night’s Watch who was killed by a White Walker in the very first episode of the show. Yohn is the head of House Royce, and...
